About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Did you catch this quote from Ron Howard? “Tom is an exciting actor to watch thinking.”

    Gee, Ron, I don’t think people go to movies to watch actors think.

    Even worse…I named my son Silas, you know, after Silas and Timothy…unfortunately I found out that Silas is the terrorist albino monk from hell in this film…

    I’m sure the movie will run even further than the book, making it over the top and completely ridiculous.
